I'm 25 years old and I have a 4month old daughter. Before I was pregnant, I had racked up some credit card debt and was actively trying to pay it off, working full time as a manager at CVS. I didn't get paid great but I made enough that I could save some and still pay my bills. When I found out I was pregnant I stopped making more than the minimum on my bills so that all of my money could go into savings. i saved a decent amount. In my 8th month I went on disability because I fell and was getting shitty money from disability. Almost all of the money that I had saved went to my bills during that time. Now I'm at SAHM. Thankfully my boyfriend makes great money and is able to pay all of his bills, my bills, our rent and still have money to save. He gave me the debit card to his account so that I can do what I need to do- pay bills, go food shopping and whatever else I want to. He says to use the card as if it were my own, if I want to get my hair done, nails done, buy some clothes etc I can use it. But I can't. I feel SO guilty buying things that I want and don't need with the card. He says it's not his money it's our money and he likes that he is able to provide for our family until I finish school and get a job. I just feel like I should be saving that money and not spending it unless I'm food shopping or buying diapers and things for the baby. even if I do see some jeans I like, or a pair of sneakers or to go get my eyebrows waxed and a $10 pedicure I just can't bring myself to do it.
Do any of you feel this way?
